  1. 1. Maybe female Red-winged Blackbird 2. Bewick's Wren 3. Male Great-tailed Grackle 4. Female Great-tailed Grackle
  2. Post to this group... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1387877288186021/
  3. Yeah, it's the only N.A. swallow that's that long.
  4. I've been birding so many years and I always kept my lists in the back index of my field guides. So many years and so many lost field guides later, I now have lots of my sightings on ebird. But I haven't done any historical yet, and many birds I can't remember for sure if I've seen or not. Guess I just have to go see them again.
  5. I've had Mourning Doves give me the broken wing routine when I've gotten too close to their nest. But always on the ground.
  6. Saw one take a ground squirrel one time.
  7. I like first Summer Male Orchard Oriole.
  8. Big eyed small owl in Dallas, I'm going Eastern Screech Owl.
  9. Too bad you're not coming to San Diego. I avoid L.A. like the plague. I recognize all the spots JimBob mentioned, and they should be enough to keep you busy. When you're driving, check around the overpasses for White-throated Swifts. Brush up on the differences between female Costa's, Anna's, Black-chinned, and Allen's Hummingbirds. You might find a feeder with all those species. Like mine. Brush up on the Terns as well, with five species likely, six or seven possible. This time of year gulls will be limited to Ring-billed, Western, and Heerman's, so no issues there. When is your trip? Next time come to San Diego and we'll knock off any you don't get this trip. Good luck, and let us know how you do.
  10. Most Sharpies have moved north for the breeding season, so I'm going with Cooper's Hawk.
  11. Lol, I've recanted my story of being attacked by a defensive goose on here before. Jodi, I would venture a guess that your Killdeer was trying to draw you away from the nest by acting like it had a broken wing, not attacking.
  12. Of course, being a brood parasite, the family was not blood related.🤔😉
  13. Dark across tip of underside of tail, and light throat, maybe Ash-throated Flycatcher.
  14. Can we eliminate Lesser Nighthawk from these pics? Habitat fits better for them.
  15. Not one I have first hand experience with, but maybe an Eastern Phoebe?
  16. I think so, but I would expect a longer primary projection. Maybe molting.
  17. Agreed. And they are literally skimming.😉
  18. Dark cap , light nape, Cooper's Hawk.
  19. The rufous color on the sides is not found on Anna's. I would say Rufous based on that and location.
  20. Nighthawks don't have pointy Bill's. See the link I provided for a pic. Killdeer have pointy Bill's 😉😎
